Interpol front-brooder Paul Banks, describing the El Pintor LP to Wondering Sound’s John Everhart, specifically cited “Everything Is Wrong” as an example of how the 2014 album was “almost off-the-cuff.” He continued, “Just feeling that freedom is a sign that I’m not second-guessing myself now.” Now Banks has directed the song’s video, as he did previously with El Pintor‘s “Twice as Hard,” and that casual looseness carries over to a black-and-white clip following the band members through a day in a city. We see various brief encounters, which from the outside contain hints of elusive meaning, and then it all coheres with a live performance at the end.

Notably, “Everything Is Wrong” will also be available as a seven-inch single on Record Store Day, which is April 18 this year. The record will include the previously digital-only B-side “What Is What.” Shepard Fairey, who was behind the cover art for 2004′s Antics, does the artwork again here, in an extension of a Brooklyn mural he created for the single last fall.
